Awful animal abuse

We tried watching the first few minutes of it with our daughter, and it’s chock full of animal abuse. How awful.

Good but bad..

This movie is so touching and I loved it as a child but the movie was made from animal cruelty’s and that’s just not acceptable. I was so disappointed and shocked when I heard and saw what this movie did.

call them “rumors” if you want but the proof is in the film

I feel strongly that NOBODY should watch this movie. I loved it when I was a child & I’ve heard the “rumors” about the film for years. but after trying to watch this with my 3 year old for the first time since I was a child, I no longer consider these claims to be rumors. the proof is literally in the film that these animals were tortured & traumatized for entertainment. the problem is when you’re a little kid you don’t understand that these animals are not actors & you don’t understand that they were put in these dangerous situations by humans & their fear is very real. I cannot believe my parents allowed me to watch this, it’s basically just 1hr & 35 min of watching animals get tortured & Dudley Moore drunkenly narrating in the background. I couldn’t keep it on for longer than 20 minutes.

It has its moments, but in general I think this has aged poorly

Watched this with my 5 year old. He was thoroughly engaged in the thrills and ebbs and flows of the film. He was legit frightened for parts of the film where he believed Milo and Otis were in physical danger. However, I found that the end of the film collapsed into these hetero tropes that felt superficially imposed and extremely artificial (yes, I know the whole story is silly, but it went from road trip film to marriage story?). Also, the film unfortunately cannot shake the accusations of being responsible for the harming of animals and so then is this really worth supporting when there are so many other lovely kids films?

Animals were tortured, abused, and killed intentionally while making this movie.

Reading these reviews is unbelievable to me. The number of morons who are justifying animal abuse in order to make a movie is sickening.

Great animal adventure movie

(I am ignoring the dangers the performers were in as stunt-people and actors dies every year or get really hurt during filming movies or shows; SHARK, FOR YOUR EYES ONLY-James Bond, EXIT WOUNDS, XXX-Vin Diesel, THE EXPENDABLES 2, DEADPOOL 2, THE WALKING DEAD, DC-TITANS, etc... .) The comedy was good, the peril really brought the attention to the kids how simple things can be dangerous. My kids at the time were 3.5 and 5 and they loved it. The movie teaches friendship, and even friendly teasing which my kids have never stopped doing. I recommend this to everyone with kids, it is an adventure that will educate and illustrates things for them.

Don't listen to the PETA bots adding reviews

My 5 year old son and 8 year old daughter loved it. It's a great tale of friendship between unlikely partners. What is up with all the parents reviewing this movie? Don't turn your kid into a total snowflake. Life on a farm is tough, in real life. The animals were treated fine in the movie.
